Getting Wild with Roxy in NYC

When Rex and I lived in the West Village, and Brent and Fitz lived on the Upper West Side, our friends from out of town were always showing up for unannounced sleepovers, demanding that we take them on sightseeing tours of our favorite Things to do in New York City. We would dutifully put together a full weekend's worth of fun, including tourist favorites such as the Statue of Liberty, ice skating at Rockefeller Center, a trip to the top of the Empire State Building, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), a visit to Times Square including cheap tickets to a Broadway show, the Museum of Natural History, and the Bronx Zoo. We'd also include certain "just for locals" elements such as a walk through the Meatpacking District (in the old days you could always find a few transvestite prostitutes instead of today's chic designer boutiques), shopping on Bleecker Street (including cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery), and dinner at a favorite restaurant or two (La Foccacia in the Village and Beppe in the Flatiron District come to mind).

Since Rex and I have moved out to the Roxiticus Valley and Brent and Fitz have also moved to the suburbs, you can't sleep at our place if you come to visit New York City. Instead, you'll have to take the recommendations I've given you on my Roxiticus Desperate Housewives blog and look into Trusted Tours and Attractions, where you'll find discounted tickets to the best sightseeing tours in 23 cities across America, including New York City. While you're at the Trusted Tours & Attractions site, be sure to check out their special promotion where you can enter to win a $150 itunes gift card by signing up for their eNewsletter. Offer ends Saturday, May 31st, 2008.

Meanwhile, I've been working on my Laguna Beach, California blog, which will be revealed to our loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers soon, and in preparation for Brent & Fitz's August 2008 trip to the West Coast, we're developing a terrific list of wild things to do in Los Angeles. We'll keep you posted!

I've always wondered what there was to do in New York City. Since I am from Michigan I always thought that the only thing to do there was go to talk shows and yes maybe see the empire state building and the statue of liberty. But I never knew there was so much more to the city than that. It was nice reading about the city and hearing that there are still great people out there like you guys that care about friendships and care about traveling to different places and knowing what there is to see before you go there. So I am eager to see your upcoming posts on what you plan to see in Los Angeles. So thank you for the great post and I hope to keep reading your great material. Sounds like you guys are great people and that is nice to know that there is still kind people out here in this big world. So keep up the great posts and hope to read more great posts from you soon....
